Some tidbits from vapors…

Near as I can figure (DeadBase X) this was only the second time (11/4/77 being first), and last until 1990 when it became more common, that Estimated was played after Eyes.

This was my first show – I vividly recall the day my brother and I went into the music store to purchase tix for Tull at the Garden. When we learned that only tickets available were for “obstructed view” we stepped aside to consult. A happy fellow was behind us in line, and when we observed his excitement at his purchase, we followed him outside and learned that he had just bought tix to the Dead. Well, that was all it took – we forgot about Tull and thus began my live experience with the boys.

Thanks SDH! This recording sounds much better than what I remember (I don’t). We had to leave before the end to catch the last train home.
